For FW de Klerk reconciliation was never about moral intention, but always about political strategy, writes Antjie Krog.
If the agricultural sector ever bought into the polarising push-back by conservative Afrikaner organisations, the land debate and any possible productive, solution-driven conversations will become redundant, writes Dan Kriek.
AgriSA president Dan Kriek's proposal for land expropriation without compensation amounts to exempting mega-farms while the rest populate the front line of expropriation at sacrificial compensation, writes Gabriel Crouse.
My message to government and the president is clear: I don't agree with plans to amend the Constitution. Section 25 of the Constitution is not the problem, says Dan Kriek, president of AgriSA.
AgriSA president Dan Kriek met President Cyril Ramaphosa in Cape Town on Tuesday, while the organisation's CEO, Omri van Zyl, held talks with Deputy President David Mabuza in Johannesburg.
AgriSA believes progress is being made in the land reform debate and that the country should steer away from radical rhetoric and policies.
Kriek cited "health and stress-related reasons", according to a statement.
Agri SA says it "will leave no stone unturned in protecting the interests of farmers" and the agricultural sector.
I am not a pop psychologist, but I do believe that if you make the effort to look for magic, you will find it. Even in the turbulent conversation on land reform there are moments that inspire hope and awe, writes Elmien du Plessis.
Agri SA has lashed out at the police for reporting inaccurate details to the media around the brutal shooting of a farm worker in Krugersdorp, Johannesburg.
